DANE M. WHALEY, 38, of Mesa, AZ, passed away on August 20, 2021. He was the son of Wayne and Janice Evans Whaley of Gilbert, AZ. Dane is preceded in death by his grandparents Cummins and Anna Evans and John and Irene Whaley. In addition to his parents, Dane is survived by his devoted brother, Sean Whaley of Salt Lake City, UT, godparents Vetra Evans and Ross and Angela Burton, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and coworkers at Boeing. He seldom shied away from a challenge and sometimes ended up in over his head. As a youth, Dane’s passions were rollerblading, the beach, video games, music, art, skiing, pizza, Disney, and being with his cousins and buddies. In adulthood, Dane became a sports car enthusiast and enjoyed an occasional poker game with family and friends. Dane attended Caesar Rodney High School (DE) and Drexel University (PA).  He was employed as an analyst for The Boeing Company. A memorial service honoring Dane Whaley will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America at wish.org/donate.
